Modhak/Kozhukattai is a popular offering to Lord Ganesha. They are prepared with rice flour, rava, khoa with different flavourings and stuffings. This recipe calls for millet flakes/poha/aval. I have made this as vegan version and hence used coconut milk and oil. Try this fruity modhak during this mango season!
- 1 Cup Pearl Millet Flakes/Poha/Aval Powder
- 1 Cup Thick Mango Puree
- 1/2 Cup Thick Coconut Milk/Dairy Milk
- 1/4 Cup Country Sugar/Jaggery/White Sugar
- 2 Tbsp Coconut Oil/Ghee
- 2 Tbsp Water
- 1/2 Tsp Cardamom Powder
- 1/8 Tsp Salt
- 1/8 Tsp Yellow Food Colour (Optional)
- Take 1.5 Cups Millet poha and roast for a few minutes on medium flame until they become crisp. Cool and grind into powder. This will measure one cup.
- On medium flame, heat a pan, add oil, puree and coconut milk. Mix everything well. Add water. When the mixture starts boiling, add the powdered poha, cardamom powder, salt and cook until it becomes soft and all moisture is absorbed.
- Add country sugar/jaggery/white sugar. It will melt and then become thick. Once the mixture becomes like a mass and rolls as a ball, switch off heat. Add yellow food colour and allow it to cool.
- Once it is warm enough to handle, using a mould, make modhaks. Serve.
